Sven Zacek - Scanning the frozen forest

Aerial photography is always interesting because it gives you a new perspective. For a project I have photographed many places in Estonia. I have started to look for animals in the landscape. I know it's hard, but my knowledge from having photographed on the ground can also be put into good use while taking pictures from above. Winter gives a nice opportunity and covers the ground with a pure white blanket. On that blanket everyone can be seen. On this particular day I was able to photograph 38 Moose, about 10 White- tailed Sea Sagles, 4 foxes and about 15 Roe Deer. After landing I was quite okay and filled with adrenaline, but the pilot was freezing :)
